Prolactin (PRL) has been shown to contribute to the development of lymphoid tissues and maintenance of physiological immune function. Here we show that the role of the hormone extends to the control of the effector phase of the immune response. In addition to triggering resting lymphocytes to cell division, the hormone can also control the magnitude of their response to polyclonal stimuli. Concentrations of PRL in the physiological range increased the [3H]thymidine, [3H]uridine, and [3H]leucine… CONTINUE READING
